REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION AT THE MASTER’S LEVEL

Applicants seeking admission to master’s level programs must possess a Diplôme national d’arts (DNA), a Diplôme national d’arts plastiques (DNAP), or Diplôme national d’arts et techniques (DNAT). Alternatively, they must demonstrate that they have earned 180 European credits or the equivalent. (See criteria for recognition of prior training below.)

Applicants whose native language is other than French must submit proof of proficiency in French in one of the following forms: (i) a report of results obtained on the TCF or DELF B2, (ii) a transcript of grades received in the course of earning a French secondary-school diploma (baccalauréat), or (iii) a copy of a French postsecondary diploma listed in the RNCP (French national registry of occupational certifications). The Centre international d’études pédagogiques (http//www.www.ciep.fr) conducts tests of French proficiency. Sessions are held each year from October through February at approved test centers (including French diplomatic posts, branches of the Alliance Française, and CIEP offices). Test results must be issued by a CIEP-approved test center in order to be accepted in support of an application for admission by equivalence.

Except for applicants governed by the Etudes en France application process (who are interviewed via Skype as described below), there is no need for applicants to submit a portfolio of work prior to the admission interview.

In the 15-minute admission interview, applicants explain why they wish to study at ENSAPC and present their original art work to a panel composed of three ENSAPC faculty members.

Admission decisions are mailed to applicants about a month following the interview.

RECOGNITION OF PRIOR TRAINING

Credits will be recognized without verification of equivalency if earned under the following circumstances:

a) in France in the context of a pertinent educational program:

– in a public institution of higher education; or

– in a private institution of higher education, provided said institution is recognized by the French government or that the program completed by the applicant within that institution confers a qualification listed in the RNCP (French national register of occupational certications)

b) in another member state of the European Union or of the European Economic Area, or in Switzerland, Monaco, or Andorra.

 

Degrees and credits earned in countries outside the European Higher Education Space will be assessed for their comparability with French degrees and European credits.

PROCEDURES FOR APPLICANTS RESIDING OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN UNION

Applicants from countries in which the Campus France local office implements the Etudes en France process (also known as the CEF process, www.campusfrance.org/fr/procédure-etudes-en-France) must submit their application through this channel. No exceptions are possible.

Applicants from other countries should submit their application directly to ENSAPC.

In all cases, applicants must demonstrate that they have successfully completed three years of postsecondary study in art and that they are proficient in French, as demonstrated by results on the TCF or DELF.

Applicants using the Études en France process have the option of submitting their application through the CampusArt network, of which ENSAPC is a member (www.campusart.org).

Applicants using the Études en France process should not submit the admission-by-equivalence form available below but instead should apply directly through the Campus France website in their country of residence. Applicants should supply their TCF or DELF B2 results in with their application.

The cultural officer at the Campus France office in the applicant’s country will contact the applicant to schedule an interview.

Applications made through the Études en France process are forwarded directly to ENSAPC. One month before the interview date, candidates must submit to ENSAPC their Skype address, a portfolio of their art work, and a copy of one form of identification (such as a passport).

In a 15-minute admission interview conducted via Skype, applicants explain why they wish to study at ENSAPC and present their original art work to a panel composed of three ENSAPC faculty members. These interviews are held over the same period as interviews with applicants from within the European Union.

Admission decisions are mailed to applicants about a month following the interview.
